Received at: 23/9/2014 Accepted: 11/11/2014 Streptococcus gallolyticus infection is considered an important septicemic disease in pigeons especially in squabs. In this study the pathogenicity and antimicrobial sensitivity of St. gallolyticus were searched. 141 samples of diseased and recently dead pigeons of different ages were collected and subjected to bacterial examination in order to isolate St. gallolyticus. Sixteen strains were isolated and identified at recovery rate of 11.35%. All… Expand

Association of Streptococcus gallolyticus Strains of High and Low Virulence with the Intestinal Tract of Pigeons
TLDR
No significant differences in the number of adhered bacteria were found between the strains of high and low virulence, and the association of S. gallolyticus strains of differing virulence with the intestinal tissue was determined quantitatively. Expand
Antibiotic treatment of Streptococcus bovis infections in pigeons.
The antibiotic susceptibility pattern of 5. bovis strains isolated from pigeons was studied. In vitro, S. bovis strains were sensitive to penicillins, macrolides, lincomycin, tetracyclines,Expand
Prevalence of antimicrobial resistance among pigeon isolates of Streptococcus gallolyticus , Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium
TLDR
Copenhagen strains isolated from homing pigeons were tested for susceptibility to the antimicrobials most commonly used to treat pigeons, and none showed extended spectrum β -lactamase activity, implying that the cephalosporins (ceftiofur) remained active. Expand
[Streptococcus gallolyticus infections in racing pigeons, a literature review].
TLDR
S. gallolyticus strains with A protein are highly virulent, while strains with only T3 or T2 protein are of moderately or low virulence respectively and possible virulence factors include survival in macrophages, adhesion to cells and toxin production. Expand
Failure of a low virulence Streptococcus gallolyticus serotype 1 strain to immunize pigeons against streptococcosis
TLDR
Findings indicate that serotype-specific antigens are not, or at least not solely, involved in induction of protection against S. gallolyticus septicaemia in pigeons. Expand
Geno- and Phenotypic Diversity of Avian Isolates of Streptococcus gallolyticus subsp. gallolyticus (Streptococcus bovis) and Associated Diagnostic Problems
TLDR
An outbreak of S. gallolyticus in a broiler flock is described for the first time and biochemical analyses, including tannase activity, identified for thefirst time avian isolates belonging to S.gallolyticUS. Expand

TLDR
Growth characteristics and several biochemical reactions were found to be useful in the differentiation of S. gallolyticus from S. bovis. Expand
Occurrence of enterococci in animals in a wild environment.

Prevalence of Streptococcus bovis in racing pigeons.
TLDR
It was concluded that S. bovis is an opportunistic pathogenic agent in pigeons and is significantly higher in January to August than in September to December. Expand
